In this Wednesday, July 25, 2012 photo, Stuart Scheinman, a partner in Las Vegas-based Premier Collectibles., looks at an original negative of actress Bette Davis in the files of Movie Star News in New York. Movie Star News, a New York institution since 1939 credited with creating the concept of pin-up art, has been shuttered, and with it nearly 3-million Hollywood-related posters, vintage photographs and original negatives are destined for a different future. Last week, the Manhattan store announced it had sold its entire inventory, including 1,500 original bondage images of the “Queen of Pin-Ups” Bettie Page, to two partners of a Las Vegas collectibles company for an undisclosed sum.
